“Sir, what does the photographing of birds look like?”
“One has to begin photographing animals very carefully. One cannot stint time or effort. A camera, which is light and quick in use, is needed. It should also have a good lens. (...) whoever wants to take photographs of animals has to be a scientist, not only a lover of nature.”
W. Puchalski, Bezkrwawe łowy [Bloodless Hunt], 3rd ed., Warsaw 1954 (self-translation)
In the 1950s and 1960s, Włodzimierz Puchalski used this camera to take most of his shots for his nature photograph albums. The most characteristic ones, which are his sign of recognition, are the evidence of his talent and timeless artistry.
The exhibit constitutes part of the collection of Włodzimierz Puchalski’s memorabilia and the works were donated by the photographer’s family. The camera is equipped with a Carl Zeiss lens.
